Five Pear Shaped Engagement Rings You Will Love
4 Apr 2016
For those who are drawn to engagement ring designs that are circular, have curves or rounded patterns but want to steer away from the ever popular round brilliant diamond or gemstones, then you many want to consider a pear shaped diamond.
Pear shaped diamonds bring together the best of oval and marquise cut stones. Being a modified round brilliant; the pear shape, otherwise known as the teardrop, will sparkle with its brilliance; they are renowned for their fire.
If you do find yourself leaning towards a pear shaped diamond for your engagement ring then there are a few things you should look out for.
You want a Pear / Teardrop diamond to look exactly like that, therefore symmetry is one of the most important factors. The pointed end should sit directly in line with the centre of the rounded end.
2. Overall Shape
All pear shaped diamonds will look different depending on the length to width ratio. A pear shaped diamond that is too elongated or too wide will not be as effective as a well proportioned diamond. It is suggested that somewhere between a 1:1.4 or 1:1.7 is ideal for this cut. However, ultimately, this is up to you and your tastes.
3. Avoid the bow-tie affect
Pear shaped diamonds that are poorly cut will exhibit a bow tie effect. This is a dark section in the centre of the diamond that can detract from its brilliance regardless of its colour or clarity.
